A fire broke out Wednesday in a bazaar in northeastern United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to local media.

The blaze erupted in the Iranian Bazaar in Ajman province but the market was closed because of the novel coronavirus.

The cause of the fire remains unclear and is under investigation as civil defense teams continue to work to bring the fire under control.

No statement about casualties has been made.
